Acid Etched Glass

Frosted type finish designed for light diffusion providing a level of privacy screening.


Applying an acid wash to one surface of the glass produces a frosted type finish similar to that of sandblasted glass. Acid etched glass is designed to offer a level or privacy, diffuse incoming light and provide a design feature in the home or building interior.
